Random freezes with "exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x2" error
The problem appears on a Acer Aspire 1692WLMi laptop (Pentium M 740, 1GB DDR2, PATA controller).
Recently the original hard disk of the computer crashed, so I changed it for a Samsung Spinpoint M60 120GB PATA (IDE). Since I had to reinstall the system, I decided to use Feisty Herd5 as it was available. (So I don't know if the problem comes from the hard disk or from the kernel). I'm now using kernel 2.6.20-14
I have totally random freezes of the system seeming to be caused by some messages in the dmesg reporting an error with an ATA drive. I don't remember that it happened with 2.6.20-12 or -13 kernel. Something that may be a cause of the problem is that all my drives are recognised as sdaX while I have a PATA hard disk... Edgy Eft did use the hdaX names, and so does the Feisty Herd 5 live CD.
